I bailed as these were landing. missed the F-35 demo at the end of the show. oh well, it was raining pretty badly by then
Hold on, they've got fake canopies painted on the undersides? That's pretty cool. I figured that was made up for anime plane games.
>they've got fake canopies painted on the undersides?

I'm airport ops. I'm a fucking moron with no idea how to take good photos and my Thinkphone takes ass pics from a distance.

I will contribute if I get gear recommendations for a first timer at photography with a $3-400 budget, since I have access to everywhere other than stuff that will put me in danger or active runways. There's a lot of things I see with my two eyes that look fucking cool but my phone cannot capture without looking completely underwhelming
Used D3400 (or D5x00/D7x00) + kit telephoto zoom lens (get the one with VR if you feel like spending a bit more, it's worth it)
How important is a telephoto lens? I was gonna do this >>4335593 but I'm now realizing from reading that the R50 is a great body with expensive lenses. I'm not scared to buy used...but mind you that's $600 for a refurb R50 just not sure if the 18-45mm lens gonna be enough.

I can set myself 5-700 feet from centerline of most runways here I would love to take a few pictures of planes on touchdown. It's a major airport so I'll get to photo 747/777/A380s.

The dual lens Nikon is uncommon, when I find them they're like $600-800
EF adapter for $60. EFS 55-250 IS STM for $350 new, $150 used. Sure it's old glass and not the best telephoto but you want a budget option, there us ho
